The average Brit will spend £185 on their yards this year, the annual HSBC Garden Survey has revealed.However, Brits might be less willing to make bank claims or incur loan charges without a good reason due to the recession.Therefore, while they are typically planning to spend ten per cent more this year on landscaping and general improvements than they did in 2011, they will reduce their outgoings on luxury items such as water features and barbecues by 67 per cent.Further evidence to the increasing thriftiness of British homeowners is evidenced by the fact that 38 per cent of households will grow fruit or vegetables in their garden.In 2011, this proportion was 33 per cent."Britain has traditionally had a love affair with gardens but with households facing financial pressures, people have to make difficult decisions about where to spend their cash," HSBC head of mortgages Peter Dockar said.Jennifer Haines Jennifer's speciality knowledge is credit card changes and balance transfers.
